The Sky of Life

The sea in the sky

The river of the stars flow in the night

The circling of the planets in a flash of time.

The galaxy swarming in universal sight

Ages with us in life.

Streaking comets.

Pass us by

The glowing stars

show the heavens in

Exploding cosmic light.

We watch as time passes us by.

We go on with life.

With many questions in our eyes.

With our heads tilted to the sky.

we silently ponder why?

As we ask the things of life.

There their for us to gaze up and see.

but with all the bright city lights.

They blink out of sight

and fade into the night.
